Ph.D. (NUS), B.Soc.Sci. (Hons.) (NUS), DipABRSM (UK), ATCL (UK), TGYMF (Japan)
I obtained the Ph.D. degree in 2010, and visited the Department of Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School as a Research Fellow before returning to the Department of Psychology at the NUS. In terms of basic research, I am mainly interested in issues of visual and auditory cognition but have, through pursuing to understand why we see objects and hear music the way we do, developed a particular curiosity for human evolutionary psychology. In terms of pedagogical research, I currently examine the efficacy of innovative pedagogical and assessment methods in hope to discover ways of promoting critical thinking and lifelong learning.
